Summary ( Ginny Blackstone thought that the biggest adventure of her life was behind her. She spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt Peg laid out in a series of letters before she died. When someone stole Ginny's backpack—and the last little blue envelope inside—she resigned herself to never knowing how it was supposed to end.

Months later, a mysterious boy contacts Ginny from London, saying he's found her bag. Finally, Ginny can finish what she started. But instead of ending her journey, the last letter starts a new adventure—one filled with old friends, new loves, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Ginny finds she must hold on to her wits . . . and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.

My Review:
There has to be a sequel to this sequel because I need more of an ending. Don’t get me wrong there was an ending, an amazing ending that was perfect except that I need more. Ginny’s life is addicting. I just need more. My new goal in life is to live underneath Maureen Johnson’s desk and drill her for details about Ginny’s life. Did I mention that its really late at night and I’m slightly off my rocker right now? You can probably tell. The Last Little Blue Envelope is full of great characters (old and new) and beautiful settings abroad. Oh and it's also hysterical. Maureen Johnson is a master at writing books that make you laugh and make you cry all at the same time. The ending of this book is bittersweet, but it is perfect despite my rant earlier. I’ll end this here to avoid spoilers. Go buy, go devour!
